Concerned with all the consequences of a sick student body, these students thought teaching handwashing only in Kindergarten was probably not enough. Using resources from the American Cleaning Institute and the Mayo Clinic they planned and conducted lessons for their elementary school students.
They created a lesson for K-3 which included reading a story and coloring contest. A short play was created for the upper grades. All grades signed a pledge sheet and got to practice handwashing and use a black light to see germs left.
